Believers Not Allowed in Worship in Newer Buildings (Myanmar/Burma)

Friday, August 3, 2001 | Tag Cloud

The military government of Myanmar (also known as Burma) has issued a degree banning Christians from worshipping in building less that 100 years old. Church buildings that are more than 100 years old are forbidden from ringing their church bells and crosses are not allowed to be placed on the buildings. Dozens of churches throughout the country have been forced to close. Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports that while believers have been allowed to worship in private homes in Hlaing Tai Yar, they have been ordered not to sing.

Please pray for the believers of Myanmar and pray for a rescinding of this restrictive policy by the government.
